What I love about Nasha Shkola…
… I especially value our professional and caring teachers and staff. Their hard work and dedication make Nasha a great place for students and families. They convey passion and enthusiasm for the subjects they teach, create welcoming environment, and encourage high academic performance.
I love the cultural aspect of our school. It allows us to bring the rich and amazing world of Russian culture to our students and build cross-cultural awareness and understanding. Here, our bilingual students have a unique opportunity to preserve their language and heritage.
I also appreciate the size of our school that allows us to support and nurture our students on individual level from their first days in kindergarten to the 8th grade. I take pride in the progress of all our students – from our high achievers to those who worked hard and achieved beyond their expectations. I marvel at their artistic performance during school concerts and events.
I feel deep gratitude to our most dedicated parents for their continuing support and engagement.
And I do believe in the future for Nasha Shkola. By working together we will reach our full potential.
For me, fun is…
… reading, traveling, taking pictures, spending time with my family and friends, and … creating and sewing traditional Slavic and Russian costumes for our school shows and events.
